In this manner, how do I choose a badminton string?
Before choosing a string and a tension, there are a few key points to understand:
- Every racket has a ‘sweet-spot’ on the string-bed; this is the area that gives you the most power and speed for your shots.
- As you increase the tension of your strings, the sweet-spot decreases on the string-bed.
What tension do professional badminton players use?
Most factory strung rackets come strung at about 18lbs – 20lbs. At the high end, some professional players have their rackets strung in excess of 30lbs. For the majority of players, between 20lbs and 30lbs is normal between a range of beginners to advanced players, including some professionals.
Check the string tension of your racket regularly. Usually, if you are playing 3-4 times a week, you should restring the racket after every 3 months.
The higher your string tension, the more control you’ll have while the looser your string tension, the more power. Here are the above tension ranges again, but adjusted for power or control: Nylon/Gut: 50-60lbs (22.5-27kg)
Yonex uses a classification of soft, medium and hard feeling strings and the best way to describe it is this; soft strings tend to feel more bouncy and stretchy, they feel like they stretch easier and hard strings feel very solid and rigid without bending much.
The AEROSONIC also received a top score of 4.8 for “good feel”, and the thinnest string in the test (0.61 mm) also managed to achieve the best score of all strings in the “Sound” category. But this very thin string also has its limits, namely when it comes to power transmission and a rich feel when smashing.

Typically a racquet will feature a recommended tension range somewhere near the throat of the racquet. The closer to the top of the range, the more control and less pop a player will experience. A lower tension will provide more power, but also less feel and control.
